After falling over a log while running my lab mix was limping. After x-rays taken by two different vets and nothing showing on the x-rays they concluded that she may have chipped a piece of cartilage. After leash walks only, rest etc. she was somewhat better but still limped. I originally was looking for chewable aspirin to ease her pain. Then I came across Phycox and started reading the reviews. Because I couldn't afford possibly expensive surgery at the time I decided to try Phycox. It has done wonders for her. No limp even after running, playing etc. She originally had some swelling but her recent yearly vet check didn't show swelling. I am somewhat concerned about how it might affect her long term as she is only 4 yrs. old. She definitely didn't tolerate Rhymidal at all. I am looking at possible laser treatment to the joint area. I am continuing to use Phycox. My other lab broke off part of one of her toenails. The vet was going to give her something for pain. I asked if I could use Phycox and since he wasn't familiar with it he looked it up and said sure try it. She did great and healed very well even though we were into some of our worst winter weather. I give her the joint treats- free product that I receive with the Phycox. Entirely pets has provided excellent service.
Really makes a difference in my 10yr old pyrenees. I can tell when we miss a couple of days. It makes it easier for him to get up and down. He has gotten to the point of reminding me every evening at 7pm if I have not given them to him. He thinks that they are a treat!!
One of our Girlz, a Golden at under the age of 2, tore both of her ACLs and had to have surgery. Phycox was the product the Orthopedic Vet wanted her to have and after much research, purchasing from Entirely Pets was the "best deal" financially. So far, our "Girl" is doing great. She will soon be 5.
As a breeder and rescue we have several older dogs at any given time. I have used phycox for several years and really like it. I see a difference in my dogs when they are on this product. It does really seem to ease their aches and pains. They also seem to really like the flavor and eat it easily
My pittbull tore his CCL while playing fetch one day about 5 years ago. I took him to several vets to have him examined. Some said he had to have surgery or he should be put down. Two of the vets agreed that in his case, surgery probably would not help. They said it would happen again, maybe in both legs next time. One of these suggested trying Phycox Soft Chews joint supplement. I tried Phycox and it helped amazingly well for my dog. He gets around fine. He still runs and plays. I don't let him play to rough with other dogs though, just being safe. On extremely cold winter days he may get a little stiff, but overall he is living a seemingly pain-free life. Two Phycox soft chews a day is all it takes to make my 8 year old Pittbull think he's still a puppy.
We've used Phycox for at least 2 years and we're very happy with how well it controls the inflammation in our older dogs' hips. The best part is they love to eat it (we don't have to wrap them in meat).
PhyCox Soft Chews were recomended by our Vet. What a difference it made. The dog has more pep and his joints don't seem to give any problems any more. He was limping pretty bad and didn't feel like playing. Now he gets the ball and brings it to us and wants to play. He wears us out sometimes. He is 13 years old. It took about a month before we started seeing results, but what a difference after that. He has been taking PhyCox Soft Chews for about a year now and he demands his soft chew every morning.
I have an older German Shepherd who recently lost the use of her back legs. The vet recommended Phycox and Rimadyl when she could walk but suffered from arthritis. It worked really well till we lost the back legs. I still give her Phycox because "the vet told me to". It seems like a very good product. Entirely Pets is where I found the best price.
I have 2 older Labs, both around fifteen years. One has hip dysplasia and the other has had TPLO surgery, They both like these so much better than the others I have purchased. I also give them to my 3 year old german shepherd because she doesn't want to be left out. They have improved mobility and seem to be alot happier.
I have been using this product for my elderly dog for a while. I can easily see that it helps her and it apparently tastes good to her so no problem in dispensing it. Was so glad to be able to get it in bulk and save some money!!
Breed:Aussie, min pin, kangal, miniature horse & goats
Both of my Aussies were on rimadyl off and on for a while. The side affects worried me. They were never as active on it as they are on the PhyCox. I added a year old min pin and they now run through the house and play all the time. Cannot say enough good about this product.
This product was recommended to me by my vet for an injury my service dog received. Mixing it with yogurt is the ONLY way she will eat it as she does not like the taste/smell of it. I am sure glad he told me about mixing it with yogurt. I don't see a whole lot of improvement with her being on this product. It is an expensive product too.
Our vet recommended these chews for our lab, who has hip dysplasia. I think they have helped, but she is also getting accupuncture and laser treatments and exercise on an underwater treadmill to rebuild her leg muscles. In addition, she has monthly injections which also help ease the joint pain. So as part of an overall treatment plan, these chews are contributing. Our dog started off with four chews a day, and is now on a maintenance dose of two per day which we plan to continue per our vet's recommendation.
